    Looks real good.

    Just out of curiosity, wouldnt it be pretty easy to put some asphalt down over that so you wont have to worry about tearing up that nice surface? I dont mean to be ignorant but im just not familar with this subject.

    we've been putting millings on some of our dirt roads here in town for the past couple years...long as you roll them fairly well, they set up nicely

    Hey what size is that John Deere skid steer? Like it? Looks like a 317

    The reason we put down the millings is because the customer didn't want to spend the money for binder... Once we get some really hot days the millings will fuse together really well... The problem is that I don't think we got the millings down early enough and now we won't have anymore hot days...

    To answer other questions... We rolled the lot for a full 8 hours witht the roller pictured... It's a 5T Vibratory...

    And the Skid Steer is a 240...

    Ahh ok that makes sense. I was just curious. I actually thought it was your own shop but now knowing it was for a customer helps explain it.

    Pavement is too expensive and heavy machiners and trucks will tear it up. Millings use to be cheap around here but the demand for them is high now so the price keeps going up.

    around me you were able to get millings free because the quarry was to over loaded with them and didnt have the room to store..
